A cozy place for lunch and dinner. A tasty menu, something for everyone. Of course you can eat the local oysters. Staff is very friendly, and the place is full of French (which is a good sign). No complex dishes, but real quality good. Year...More

An excellent location, the bar is brilliant for a beer or/and a bottle of wine and a good old natter. The food seems to always please my guests but leaves me a little discontented. I love the atmosphere, the people, the Frenchness (if that’s a...More

That's because we were seated in a booth along a wall between the lavatory and the scullery. 'Perfect if you were a mob boss planning a heist and didn't want anyone to know' said my friend. But the 36 oysters were almost perfect, just a...More

We've eaten here a few times and enjoyed it. It's always lively, they don't take reservations, so getting a table can be pot luck. Coming early and sitting with a drink works well, but this evening we turned up at around 8.30 and waited for...More

At the time of visiting, Google said they were shut but when we walked past the restaurant was packed. This place doesn't take bookings, and if you ask for a table they won't even take your name. You stand at the bar and have a...More
